Here's The First 3D Picture of Rosetta's Comet!

Watching movies in 3D can be a rather unsatisfying experience. But images from outer space given back a little more of their depth and span through some old-school movie magic? That we can get behind. The picture is after the jump!

The ESA took some of the shots they've snagged recently of Comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko and used them to create this 3D image:


Of course, if you don't happen to have a pair of 3D glasses readily at hand (the ESA, sadly, does not supply those) you still have a couple more options available to you, including looking at the image up top (which is one of the original photos that scientists used to create the image) or comparing it with the 3D model that the ESA put together to show what they expected to see.

Images: ESA/Rosetta/MPS for OSIRIS Team.
